Unique opportunity to develop your business acumen in the US

A unique opportunity to develop your business acumen in the United States of America

Fulbright New Zealand develops future leaders through one of the most prestigious exchange scholarships in the world. The most valuable of Fulbright New Zealand’s range of graduate awards, Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Awards in Business, are for emerging New Zealand business leaders to complete a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at the leading US business school of their choice, to gain professional work experience in the US, and to access employment networks or venture capital contacts upon their return to New Zealand. Two awards valued at up to US$75,000 (plus a paid internship) will be offered this year.

Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Awards in Business are for talented business professionals who have the academic credentials, work experience, leadership potential and ability to make a real contribution to the development of New Zealand’s economy. If successful, you will be able to further develop the business acumen, leadership skills and aspirations that will accelerate you in your business ambitions, before returning to New Zealand to help grow our economy through new business ventures. You will also develop international networks which last a lifetime and play a part in strengthening the relationship between New Zealand and the United States.

There have been eight Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Awards in Business granted since the programme started in 2005. Grantees have drawn on their impressive skills in areas including biomedicine, biotechnology, information technology, agricultural biotechnology, medical information technology, human resource development and clean tech entrepreneurship to create business opportunities that are strengthening NZ-US relations and helping to grow both economies. They have become successful world-class business people and mentors for budding New Zealand entrepreneurs.

If you are an emerging business leader with lots of initiative and want to take your business acumen to a new level, don’t miss this opportunity that could change your life!

Applications for 2015 Fulbright-Platinum Triangle Awards in Business close at 5:00pm on Monday, 2 June 2014.
